Washer would stop in the midst of a cycle and have to be reset.The belt was more than likely old and stretched and was not engaging properly.

Tilted the washer as described in the "video".I was able to "balance" the washer with one hand and remove and install the belt with my other hand. The whole process took less than five minutes.It was just a matter of turning the pulley and "pushing " the belt on with my hand.The washer works great.Trust me, I've NEVER had anything go easier than this installation in my life.Thanks for a great video, and getting the correct part out as quickly as you did.

Tilted washer backward and simply took old belt off and replaced with new by wrapping smaller pulley's first and larger pulley last. Next was a simple replacement of pump through back panel of washer. Washer is now quite and spins clothes more efficiently and reduces dryer times.

I don't think I have a lot to add, there are some great instructions and comments already on the site. Our washing machine is getting a little old but this was a fairly easy fix. Our washing machine was constantly off balance and walking across the floor. I can't believe how much of a difference these little parts made. It saved us a ton of money so thank you PartsSelect!

was really easy. I watched the video and was done in less than 10 minutes. I read other stories and pushing the tub over and removing and installing the screws would have been very difficult. Opening the lid was very easy then the screws are right there in front of you.

Burning smell and light smoking

  • Difficulty: Really easy

After pulling the front panel off the washer, I determined the source of the smell and smoke to be the motor. I reviewed partselect.com troubleshooting page for burning smell and found that the motor was the second highest cause for this occurence. The first was a worn belt. I was certain it was the motor, but double checked the belt. The belt is still good. My next step was to watch the video on partselect.com to determine if this was a project within my capabilities. After viewing the video, I placed my order with standard shipping on Thursday at 10pm est. The motor arrived on Tuesday evening via UPS at 6:00 pm. I started the installation at 9:30 pm after the kids were put to bed. The dismantling and reinstallation was exactly as viewed on the video. By 10 pm I was reinstalling the front panel. This was two weeks ago with an average of 2-3 loads a day and not another issue with the burning smell or smoke. Partselect.com saved me a couple hundred dollars in appliance repair service costs and several hundred if I would have purchased a new washer. I will definately keep partselect.com in my favorites for the next appliance repair.

Initially, it was uncertain how to remove the front panel. There were hidden clips that I was unaware of. But, the video on partsselect's website was excellent. It gave me the confidence exactly what to component to purchase and how to repair my washer. My repair was identical to the drain pump video and had no issues what so ever.

Tilt washer back to expose the bottom. Remove broken belt. Install new one. Do a test run: Washer is back to working fine. Note: My boyfriend actually did the repair while I was at work, but reported that I could have done it myself easily. Also: FedEx delivered the part on a Saturday without an extra delivery charge, so my washer was repaired several days sooner than I anticipated. Thanks, PartSelect!
